Walt Disney Pictures has released a new special look video for their upcoming fantasy sequel ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’, featuring new footage from the film including a preview of the Queen’s true intentions which is set to debut on October 18.
Oscar and three-time Golden Globe winner Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning reprise their roles as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively, two characters from the studio’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty, whose untold story was previously brought to life on screen in 2014’s Maleficent.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora.
The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.
The film is directed by Joachim Rønning from a story by Linda Woolverton and a screenplay by Linda Woolverton and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster.
It is produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Michael Vieira serving as executive producers.
On a related note, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and Hades from Hercules recently joined previously released FunkO’s cereals based on Ursula from The Little Mermaid and Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Each cereal comes with a Pocket Pop prize inside.
